How To Add Space After A Full Stop In Google Docs

It took me almost a week to get this solved. Google support was not able to tell how to do it even after 3 chat sessions (I wasted more than 5 hours with them with no solution!), only after I actually "consulted with my hacker character Nate" I actually did come up with a smart idea that brought me the solution within 1 hour.
